forth out of the tombs after his resurrection they entered (54) into the holy city and appeared unto many. "Now the centurion, and they that were with him watching Jesus, when they saw the earthquake, and the things that were done, feared exceedingly, saying, Truly this was the Son 55 of God. "And many women were there beholding from afar, which had followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering 56 unto him: "among whom was Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James and Joses, and the mother of the sons of Zebedee.


And when even was come, there came a rich man from Arimathæa, named Joseph, who also himself was Jesus' (58 disciple: "this man went to Pilate, and asked for the body of Jesus. Then Pilate commanded it to be given (59 up. "And Joseph took the body, and wrapped it in a 60 clean linen cloth, "and laid it in his own new tomb, which he had hewn out in the rock and he rolled a great stone 61) to the door of the tomb, and departed. "And Mary Magdalene was there, and the other Mary, sitting over against the sepulchre.


Now on the morrow, which is the day after the Preparation, the chief priests and the Pharisees were gathered (63 together unto Pilate, "saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days (64 I rise again.

"And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled away the 3 stone, and sat upon it. "His appearance was as lightning, and his raiment white as snow: "and for fear of him the 5 watchers did quake, and became as dead men. "And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye : for I know that ye seek Jesus, who hath been crucified. 6 "He is not here; for he is risen, even as he said.
